Helen Flanagan recently revealed she was entering the seventh month of her pregnancy smiling after getting through months of unpleasant pregnancy sickness.

And taking to Instagram over the Easter weekend, Helen shared a relaxed and happy shot of her soaking up some sunshine in Scotland.

Looking every inch the glowing second-time-mum to be, Helen sported a gingham maternity shirt, which tied around the waist just above her bump.

She teamed it with skinny jeans and comfy Converse trainers.

And if Helen was still feeling the effects of pregnancy-related nausea, it certainly wasn’t apparent to her followers, who were quick to praise her effortless maternity style.

“Glam pregnancy,” wrote one fan, adding a heart emoji. “Looking gorgeous” and “So pretty and amazing,” chipped in others.

Helen had posted to Instagram a few days previously asking for advice on how to cope with her ongoing pregnancy sickness.

Writing underneath a picture of her having dinner on holiday in Dubai, Helen revealed that she was “7 months today and starting my third trimester…”

She went on to say she hoped she feels “less sick in this trimester” and that although she had been “completely wiped out with sickness” in her first three months of pregnancy, the previous three had been a “breeze” by  comparison.

“I’ve had a little bit of nausea and sickness but it’s been really manageable,” she wrote. “This is really not a moaning post at all. I know how very lucky I am to be pregnant, just posting about my pregnancy sickness for other pregnant women to relate to xxxx. Will do a post soon on what I feel helps and helped me with my pregnancy sickness.”

Helen then asked her followers to share their tips on combating nausea on her thread.

Coronation Street star Helen, 27, and footballer boyfriend Scott Sinclair announced their second pregnancy back in December, and Helen said it had been a bit of a surprise time-wise, although all the pregnancy signs were there.

“I was very happy, but I was a bit taken aback as this baby wasn’t in the plan. I knew I would feel a lot better once I’d told Scott,” she told OK! magazine.

She added: “I did three more tests just to make sure it was correct! I had a very strong feeling I was pregnant, so I wasn’t surprised.”

The soap star previously said her first trimester had been “horrific” as she suffered from hyperemesis gravidarium, the same form of extreme pregnancy sickness that has plagued the Duchess of Cambridge.

She ended up in hospital where she had scans, fluids and anti-sickness injections.

“Luckily it cleared up at ten weeks. I know some women have a horrific time and end up in the hospital for nine months, so I was lucky, but it was horrendous,” she told OK.
